AI and Analytics for Business


We hope you are doing well and were able to find some time to relax this summer. While also taking opportunities to re-energize, the AIAB team has been working expeditiously over the past few months to successfully shift to a completely online environment. Some highlights include: working with Baring Private Equity Asia to host our first virtual datathon, revamping the AIAB website, and collaborating with Wharton Senior Fellows to create timely analytics think pieces.

And we’re just getting started! AIAB is excited to share its new quarterly newsletter. Here you’ll find the latest AIAB news, upcoming programs, engagement opportunities, and thought leadership. Enjoy!


New Year, New Look 

Now more than ever, online resources are vital for community building, information sharing, and skill development. AIAB’s new website makes it easier to access analytics research, online resources, and thought leadership. Whether you’re an undergraduate, MBA student, or an industry professional looking to learn more about analytics, AIAB is your one-stop shop.

Experiential Learning

Analytics Accelerator

Quintessential fall activities – watching the leaves turn, consuming pumpkin spice everything, and the AIAB Analytics Accelerator! For the fourth year in a row, students across the University, from undergraduate to PhD programs, will create statistical models and dashboards for companies to implement into their actual data environments.

AIAB is excited to announce this fall’s line up – Comcast, Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions, Evite, Lidl, Neuroflow, and TE Connectivity. Each company brings a unique challenge for its team to solve, giving students hands-on experience with real-world datasets. The teams will spend six weeks working with a Wharton mentor and will present their implementable solutions at the Analytics Accelerator Summit on Nov. 13.
